Reading Time: < 1 minute

On 3 April, Hungarians were called to the polls to choose the new Parliament composition and vote on questions raised in the context of a referendum on “child protection”.

Participation reached 69.52% nationally. It was 68.13% in 2018 and 61.73% in 2014.

Of the 199 deputies present in Parliament, 106 are elected by uni-nominal ballot in one round and 93 by list ballot. At 21:00, first results are starting to come in. Péter Márki-Zay is said to be beaten in his constituency against János Lázár. This result was confirmed later: János Lázár (Fidesz) won with 52 %, Péter Márki-Zay got only 40 %.

At 98,43% of ballots processed, Fidesz-KDNP is at 53,18% at the national level, and won 88 of the 106 districts, getting therefore 135 MP (+2). The united Left wing opposition “United for Hungary” lead by Péter Márki-Zay is at 34,95% at the national level and won the remaining 18 districts, getting 56 sieges (-9). The patriotic party Mi Hazánk (Our Homeland) reached 6,19%, and got 7 sieges in the Parliament. The National Self-Government of Germans in Hungary also succeeded to get one representative (close to Fidesz).

Fidesz-KDNP (National-Conservative, Christian-Democrat) 135 (+2)
United for Hungary (EU Federalists, Greens, Socialists, Progressives, Populists) 56 (-9)
Mi Hazánk (Nationalist) 7 (+5 / did not exist at the time of the 2018 elections)
MNOÖ (German ethnic minority party) 1 (-)
